I am wondering if there is any free online place that I can use to get some design ideas. I want to get those ideas and then use a service like Fiverr to get a for example logo designed for me.

For example I want my logo shows the concept of insight, but I don't know what graphic shows that concept. Is there anywhere on the web or any book that has some design samples for different concepts?

Maybe a more appropriate question is: for a person who is not a gifted graphic designer, is there a way to find some design ideas? For example how to find a design idea for the concept of insight? Is there a book or a resource that can help?

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

So you want someone to give you an idea for free, then someone else to make it for you for $5? Hrrrm..... that's asking for quite a lot... see also How would you like your graphic design – user568458 Jan 17 '14 at 17:06

@user568458 I do not want anybody to work for free. However, there are a lot of free resources, such as open source codes, free images, etc. I was wondering if there is similar thing for design ideas. – TJ1 Jan 17 '14 at 20:19
